Gorgeous sky! Did you alter the photo a bit to make the skies red?
Hi, Rose. No, those are the colors of the illumination (It’s the old type) reflecting in the cloudy night. It’s a kind of fog we call “camanchaca”. : )
Camanchaca. Beautiful. Thanks for answering my question, Francis :)
Increíbles colores Francis! muy bello!
Gracias Landa, me alegro de que te guste ^-^
<3 a beautiful camanchaca, new word for me thanks :)
It’s a word in Aymara language. Thanks for the compliment. : )
Thank you kind lady. n_n
Some of your photos, Francis.. sometimes, they’re almost like.. gems. : ) How can I put this ..all the color and light that shines through from the image.. warm and sparkling, like from a gemstone. ^-^ I remember that photo of the lavander flower gave me the same feeling. And here.. the crimson, as you said, or even ..siam, I think, when it’s reddish …it’s just mesmerizing. : )
Thank you, Nicol : ) it’s the light of the sea fog of the North or Atacama desert from the North of Chile to the South of the Peruvian coast. It’s almost magic beacuse it moves so fast, the fog like a creature traveling the night. I am glad you liked it. ^-^
In fact, it’s the whole combination, sky, as the backdrop, and its.. crimson creature : ) ..then the city lights, the rocks and the water.. giving that fleeting sensation of a few seconds seized, like a freeze-frame in a fine movie. But, although fleeting, it stays.. imprinted in one’s thoughts. ^^
I guess the whole photograph is an exotic portrait for the visitors from other countries of something normal for us. I am a bit surprised of the comments. : D
Merci beaucoup chère Sylvie : )
Wow, love all these colours and lights, it appeals to my magpie love of shiny things
If you were a magpie I’ll give you any shiny thing in my posession (and even from my neighbours as well, lol). n_n
Haha, that’s just the kind of friend a magpie-minded girl needs :D Thanks
Love the rich colors of this image.
Thank you, Inese. That’s the night in the shores of Ilo city. Bright with lights coloring the night.
I love the holiday spirit of the photograph :)
Can you believe every night is like that? And still it’s a safe city.
I have been in holiday cities, and most of them were safe. All the local life depends on tourists, and it is why even the mafia keeps them safe :)
Oh, this is not a holiday city. It’s one of miners and fishermen. I have only seen six tourists perhaps. I go also just for work, and see the sea is my way to relax a bit.
Then it is a safe place indeed – people work for living and have no time for messing around :)
Not totally, it doesn’t matter how much work one have still is important and healthy to mess around. Otherwise it would be a sad life without joy.
That place again… And that crimson sky…
Ilo city, a place I cherish, it’s going to be again here
Hi Francis .. wonderful colours. A great shot :D
Hi Julie, nice to see you ^^/ Thank you, it is from the old port : )
